This study investigated the in vitro anti-biofilm effect of both N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and a new multicomposite based on NAC and cyclodextrins. The anti-biofilm activity was expressed as percentage of biofilm reduction. Results revealed an increased biological activity of the multicomposite at low concentrations. The Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) joined to the Energy Dispersive Spectrometry (EDS) technique highlighted that the biofilm amount decreased with increasing NAC concentration. This work highlighted the minimum concentration of NAC able to interact in the Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm formation process and the promising use of a new composite based on NAC and cyclodextrins.
